Fairytale Romance for Bella Belle’s ‘Enchanted’ Bridal Shoes Collection
I have long been swooning over the beautiful bridal shoes of Bella Belle – since they first introduced themselves some 2 years ago (you can see their first two collections here and here on Chic Vintage Brides) The intricate designs fusing old world elegance and contemporary details, exquisite luxury and attention to detail including their ‘Something blue’ sole, make them perfect for the modern vintage bride. And so today I couldn’t be more thrilled to be sharing this magical shoot showcasing the timeless romance of their latest collection ‘Enchanted’. In addition to the gorgeous designs, you’ll find the styling of the shoot by none other than Joy Proctor Design perfection; and Kurt Boomer‘s emotive photographs will no doubt take your breath away!….
From Erina & Veronyca, the lovely ladies at Bella Belle: “The inspiration for Bella Belle’s Enchanted collection sprung from a lush spring garden abounded with luscious flora. We infused a lot of handcrafted floral details in form of beading and embroidery on this enchanting collection. The lush gardens remind us of the spring season which signifies the start of the new chapter. How fitting for Bella Belle brides as they walk down the aisle to start a new chapter in their lives!
The Enchanted collection carries a range of delicate mesh flats, hand embellished and embroidered with intricate details. They are the perfect modern day glass slippers. Bella Belle heel collection showcases a play in texture and materials. Pairing intricate mesh fabric with opulent jewels to achieve exquisite details, our heel collection is as statement making as it is comfortable.
For this collection, we have teamed up with Joy Proctor of Joy Proctor Design to design three pair of heels for the collection. Joy’s vision for her designs came from the colors, textures, and shapes that inspire her most. The heels she has designed reflect the elegant yet understated beauty that her design is known for. Taking inspiration from the three great women in her life that has inspired her, Joy named her designers after her grandmother, mother and Sister. The Belle, an elegant sheer bootie with delicate tulle and peal embroidery was named after her grandmother, Virginia Belle Proctor. The Adelaide, which was named after Joy’s mother, is a traditional style Mary Jane made with natural silk linen with bloom embroidery in soft pastel colors. The Elise is a feminine yet elegant heel complete with a tulle bow, named after Joy’s little sister.”
Isn’t it just heavenly? All those beautiful florals and stunning shoes… how is a bride to choose? Oh and if you haven’t been thinking of a destination wedding before, surely Chateau Cocomar and it’s beautiful architecture has you tempted?? A huge thank-you to Kurt Boomer, Joy Proctor Design and everyone involved in creating this enchanting vision. And especially to Bella Belle shoes whose creations were the inspiration for the whole shoot.
